I'm talking legs, if you are a dog.
Poor Maddy - this canine just can't seem to catch a break! Last week, she and Steve were going in opposite directions around a corner. She stepped on his shoe and her back leg slipped off, causing her to fall down on her only front elbow.
She could not get up. She was clearly distressed, panting and shaking.... I gave her a Rimadyl and decided we'd take her to the ver in the morning... Diagnosis, nothing broken, no signs of cancer in that leg, just probably a really bruised elbow.
Well, that was on Wednesday of last week. She is just now starting to have confidence moving around, poor girl... But she's still a tail-wagging, smiling-from-ear-to-ear, happy pup.
